    I've got the phone and I am very happy with it. I think the action cam and it's set-up is great. I can't seem to get an external microphone to work with it though.

      I never knew Motorola made smartphones

        Oh man, I love the idea! It's the sort of out-of-the-box thinking that used to be common in so many industries. Deceptively why not just reverse one of the video lenses? Yet no one else thought of it!

        Sadly it'll likely flop because it's positioned as a midrange. Great idea, but not too sure if it matches their target demo. That market in the US gravitates to higher-end smartphones or can only afford budget. Can definitely see this do well internationally, though Motorola already does well with that demo everywhere else but the US.

          How is it possible that sub 200$ Xiaomi phones have 4000mAh batteries inside of them but Sony ans Motorola can't put out a phone with more than 3500mAh batteries inside....... If a phone can barely last a day new, imagine what the battery life is gonna be in a year

              The 90 degree camera is actually a really brilliant idea.

                Bummer for the US not getting the Android One version of the Motorola One Action, as Motorola have proven they can't be trusted with updates on their own, which makes this phone a no go with their terrible record with updates.

                        Mounting the camera sensor 90° horizontally is a GREAT idea! Holding a phone sideways with 2 hands is so odd (but necessary with other phones). So making video easier to take with one hand is awesome. Good job Motorola.

                                The landscape video while holding the phone vertically is quite innovative and might I add, useful.

                                                            Because more people still use 16:9 and laptops mainly use it?
